Purchase this concert

In the centennial celebration of Astor Piazzolla, the single most important figure in the history of tango, multi-Grammy-nominated violinist Philippe Quint performs some of the most iconic tango pieces in a program that uses music, narration and visuals to showcase the music and movement that define this historical dance.

Philippe is joined by the brilliant pianist Jun Cho for an evening that centers the work of the Argentine master of the tango, but reaches well beyond the Southern Cone. The performance is pre-recorded, and top quality, produced by our friends at the Philharmonic Society. Philippe will be joining the assembled for a Zoom chat after the show.

A generous patron has underwritten the performance, so money collected will go to the Groupmuse Foundation.

Hi all, due to an issue with the settings on the YouTube video, you can just hit play and watch it whenever you want — it’s not programmed to start at any time. Philippe will be joining the Zoom at 6pm CT.
